...------------------------------------------------- Water in the UAE ------------------------------------------------- Impact Achievements and Ways Forward Introduction Water is the resource that sustains all life on earth and is a key element of sustainable development. It is essential if human beings are to enjoy healthy and safe lives or realize social and economic development. Ecosystems are also inextricably linked with water. Water sustains humans’ health, food production, and economic development. But only 3 percent of Earth’s water is salt-free, or fresh water. Moreover, nearly 70 percent of fresh water is locked in glaciers and icebergs, and is not available for human use. The fresh water that is available comes from rain or from rivers, lakes, springs, and some groundwater reserves, such as aquifers. With the increasing demand on water for all aspects of sustainable development, water is becoming very scares all around the world! * Around 700 million people in 43 countries suffer today from water scarcity. * By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world's population could be living under water stressed conditions. * With the existing climate change scenario, almost half the world's population will be living in areas of high water stress by 2030, including between 75 million and 250 million people in Africa.

Nissan Case

...1. To enlist support from the employees, I think a shared vision and a clear strategy is key success factors. One of the fundamental problems when Carlos Ghosn arrived at Nissan was the lack of vision from management. By a restructuring in the organization and the grouping of Cross Functional Teams, I believe that the explaining and communication sharing, hereunder common vision, across the entire company was improved. Next step was the formulation of the new strategy. When formulating a strategy it is very important to choose a strategy that is compatible with the organizational culture. It is my opinion that Carlos Ghosn succeeds with the adaption of strategy into organizational structure, by letting the employees in the CFT’s create the strategy themselves, or at least be a big part of the strategy creation. In order to achieve an effective strategy execution you need to adapt the culture to the selected strategy. By reaching to conclusions of plant closures and employee reductions, I think that the CFT’s managed to adapt the culture to the selected strategy. Overall Carlos Ghosn experienced a willingness of the Nissan employees at all levels to change their mindset and embrace new ideas. In my opinion Carlos succeeded in enlisting different parts of the organization, because he created and communicated a shared vision and included many of the employees in the new strategy and the underlying process. The employees in the Cross Functional Teams and......

...HISTORICAL BACKGROUND Early Years: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) was formed from the group of tribally organized Arabian Peninsula sheikhdoms along the southern coast of the Persian Gulf and the northwestern coast of the Gulf of Oman. This area was converted to Islam in the seventh century and for Library of Congress – Federal Research Division Country Profile: United Arab Emirates, July 2007 centuries afterward was embroiled in dynastic disputes. Most UAE nationals are descended from two tribal groupings, the Qawasim and the Bani Yas, which emerged as leading powers in the eighteenth century. The Qawasim, mainly land and sea traders, dominated what are today the emirates of Ras al Khaymah and Sharjah. The Bani Yas, who were agricultural and pastoral, lived in what are today the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. From the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, the area became known as the Pirate Coast, as both European and Arab pirates attacked foreign ships. The British mounted expeditions against the pirates during this period, culminating in an 1818 campaign against the pirate headquarters of Ras al Khaymah and other harbors along the coast. This action ostensibly was taken to safeguard British maritime routes, particularly those of the British East India Company, but some historians have noted that the war was in fact motivated by the British desire to establish supremacy in the region against the claims of other European powers.

...Renault/Nissan: The Making of a Global Alliance Prepared By: Jason Park & Isaac Hattem Why is Renault seeking a strategic partner? What are Renault’s strengths and weaknesses in seeking a partner? The most successful strategic alliances are between companies with complementary strengths and weaknesses. Renault has been building cars since it was started under the name Socié Renault Frè té res. Louis Renault, his brothers Marcel and Fernand, and his friends Thomas Evert and Julian Wyer founded it in 1899. Since the beginning they have been an industry leader in small car designs, combining functionality with style. In 1998 Renault was the world‟s ninth-largest car manufacturer with 4.3% of the market. During the 90‟s globalization was occurring in all industries including the automobile industry. Major manufactures were seeking strategic alliances and mergers as ways to increase market share, reduce costs, and improve productivity. Renault has been an established French automaker since it started producing cars in 1897. Like many other companies Renault has been looking to expand into the Asia for its large potential market. They felt that the best way to do this was through a strategic alliance. Renault has been looking for another automobile manufacturer to peruse a possible alliance with since the early 90‟s.

Uae: Economics

...U.A.E: The Success Story The emergence of the UAE as an economic powerhouse is an example of a country going through a tremendous transformation. From a tiny country with a nomadic society to building the most modern city in the world. The city being Dubai of course. Dubai is the crown jewel of the UAE and the arab world as a whole. Now one of the most sought-after tourist destinations and business hubs for citizens of the world, Dubai’s success story has made many other Middle Eastern nations take notice. In a survey done by the Arab Youth organization, young arabs chose the UAE as “the country they would most like to move to… and the country they would most like their country to emulate” (Badam). The UAE was ahead of 20 other countries, including the United States, Germany and Britain, as young people’s top country to live in. What led to the UAE’s astronomical rise? What policies led to the resources from oil revenues being spent in the most efficient fashion in comparison to other nations? These are the questions I will tackle in this paper. The UAE was established in 1971 when the rulers of the seven independent emirates agreed to instill a unifying constitution. The ruler of Abu Dhabi at the time , Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, was chosen to lead the country. Since then, the ruler of Abu Dhabi is President of the United Arab Emirates, the head of state, and the ruler of Dubai is the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, the head of government.

...Emirates Uae Economics Essay In less than four decades, the United Arab Emirates, a relatively young country, changed from a huge desert to a country that is known today as one of the best in the world to live in. The UAE is a federation of seven monarchies: Abu-Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras AL- Khaimah and Umm al-Qaiwain. The country is located in the Middle East and is part of the Gulf Cooperation Council which is an economic alliance of six countries bordering the Arab Gulf. Its law is based on Sharia but the UAE is one of the most liberalized countries in the GCC: others beliefs and religions are tolerated. The economy is heavily depending on oil wealth despite the government's efforts to diversify the sources of income. The population is mostly comprised of expatriates (88.52% of the total population in 2010 as per the National Bureau of Statistics estimates). Abu Dhabi, which is known as the driving force in economic, political and decision making process, account for about 90 percent of the oil production, and oil contribute 56% of the entire GDP of the emirates. Dubai is actually the main responsible for the remarkable growth witnessed in the majority of the UAE non-oil sector, Dubai serves as the financial hub in the whole middle east, with commerce, transportation, services and tourism as the driven force of the economy. Its GDP has experienced an exponential growth of around 245% from 2000 to 2011. In the UNDP's Human Development Report 2011, the......

Uae Report

...History The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of seven states that has grown from a quiet backwater to one of the Middle East's most important economic centres. The UAE’s rich history is rooted in trade and tied to Islam, which came to the region in AD 630. Its location between Europe and the Far East attracted merchants from India and China and was prized by Europeans, in particular the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British. While Europeans sought control of the coasts, inland, the ancestors of the Bedouin made the sandy deserts of Abu Dhabi and Dubai their home. The town of Abu Dhabi became an important center. In the 19th century, the British signed a series of agreements with the individual emirates that resulted in the area becoming known as “The Trucial States.” They agreed not to dispose of any territory except to the United Kingdom and not to enter into relationships with any foreign government other than the United Kingdom without its consent. In return, the British promised to protect the coast from all aggression by sea and to help in case of land attack. The pearling industry thrived in 19th and early 20th centuries, providing income and employment to the people of the Gulf. Many inhabitants were semi-nomadic, pearling in the summer and tending date gardens in the winter. But the economic depression in the late 1920s and early 1930s, coupled with the Japanese invention of the cultured pearl, irreparably damaged the industry. New Beginnings In the......

Renault & Nissan

...The Renault and Nissan alliance Renault, the oldest automaker in France, had been nationalized by Charles de Gaulle in 1945. In the late 1990s, its financial performance had been buoyed by a strong European car market, several popular new models, and extensive cost-cutting. So it was time for Renault to find the partners again since merging with Swedish automaker Volvo had failed due to not match objective; internationalization. In 1997, the Asian financial crisis was like the opportunity for Renault. At that time, Nissan, a Japanese company with a famous bureaucratic management style, was a company on the verge of collapse. It faced with the loss of market share and poor returns. For worse, it was in debt and was under the pressure from the bank. These brought Renault and Nissan to ‘The Renault-Nissan Alliance’ in March 1999. The objectives of Renault are to improve the quality and internationalization. Nissan’s objectives are reduce the cost and the debt. In practice, they formed cross-company teams to study and realize synergies across the major functional areas of both firms since the alliance. They combined two nations together. CCTs had to prepare a report on their progress to the Alliance Coordination Bureau (CB) which functions were providing specialized technical advice, trying to resolve companywide policy issues that went beyond a single CCT, and trying to resolve specific conflicts within the CCTs in a given area.
